Saturday's Critters #281

Welcome to Saturday's Critters !


If you love all God's creatures like I do and also like to blog about them and take critter photos this is where you can share your critter post. Link up your post and share your critters, join in with my critter party ! You can share any kind of critters the real ones, pretend ones, statues and paintings, a new or old post!

These are images and birds seen around April 22-26th.  I was still seeing some winter birds like the Dark-eyed Junco and White-throated Sparrows. My spring/summer birds and some migrants are moving through. It is my favorite time of the year for bird watching. 

The Dark-eyed Junco, White-throated Sparrows and even the Red-breasted Nuthatch were still being seen April 22-25th. 



April 24th, the Pine Siskins are still here. I was seeing 6-8 Pine Siskins at my feeders. 



I enjoyed seeing the Pine Siskins fighting for a space at the feeders. I also saw a few American Goldfinches. 


The Blue Jays were enjoying the suet ball feeder. 



April 22nd  my Ruby-throated Hummingbird has a few spot to sit and watch his feeder. 




On April 26th,  saw one lone Rose-breasted Grosbeak at my feeder.  A migrant, I believe this is the female. 




I appreciate and thank everyone who links up their post and for all the wonderful comments !










Here is a list of my linky parties;

  27. Hej Eileen!
    Det är något som är svårt att beskriva men som kanske måste upplevas många gånger, den när flyttfåglarna anländer nästan på samma datum varje år. Den glädje jag känner när de välbekanta ljuden hörs och den lilla fågeln som flugit från andra sidan jordklotet för att sätta bo i min trädgård, uppenbara sig för första gången i år, den känslan måste upplevas. Jag blir fylld av ödmjukhet över detta naturens underverk som sker varje vår.

    Dessutom tror jag att de personer som kan njuta av vår natur också är människor med ett gott hjärta för allt levande, men det är bara vad jag tror, inte vet.

    Trevlig helg!

    1. Hello Gunilla, I agree people who enjoy nature usually have big hearts. I feel the same as when I hear my favorite spring birds return and start singing outside my windows. What a treat! Enjoy your day and thanks!
